I agree the timing sucked, but anytime a coaching change is made, you risk losing recruits, that's just part of the deal. Every head coach was given the opportunity to become a head coach sooner or later. No one knows how JJ will do, how successful he might be, etc.....we just have to give him time to either prove himself or not. I choose to believe he's going to do a good job, as opposed to thinking that he won't. Time will tell. The SG era at VT was coming to its inevitable end either this year or next, between the staff defections and other well-discussed issues that existed within the athletics dept., Seth was not going to be here much longer. JJ has put together a solid staff, if some guys don't want to be here, those are more 'ships that are at the disposal of the new staff. Life, and basketball, goes on.
